How does Laurelwood work?

Laurelwood contains compounds that seem to have activity against HIV and tuberculosis. However, there isn't enough evidence to know if laurelwood works for medicinal uses in humans.

Are there safety concerns?

Laurelwood is possibly safe when the laurelwood compound (+)-calanolide is used by HIV-negative individuals. It can cause some side effects including dizziness, oily aftertaste, headache, and nausea. There isn't enough reliable information available about the safety of laurelwood for its other uses.

Do not use laurelwood if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.

Dosing considerations for Laurelwood.

The appropriate dose of laurelwood depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for laurelwood. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
